Motocross racing goes indoors in AMA Supercross Futures and Arenacross, with tight courses set up inside arenas and other venues across the country. The tighter indoor tracks tend to put a premium on technique and finesse, as well as fitness.
Beginning in 2019, the Supercross Futures Series, an AMA National Championship, serves as the official advancement platform to Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship.
The Supercross Futures experience is designed to produce a higher-quality, more competitive stadium racing landscape with an advancement path to AMA Supercross competition. The series’ events will take place on Sundays after select AMA Supercross events at the same venue the stars of the AMA Supercross raced on the previous night on tracks that are raceable for all skill levels.
The series features 26 classes from the 51cc Limited Class for racers age 4-6 to the 250cc 250SX Futures Class where riders earn points toward obtaining the 250SX pro license. Only A classification riders may compete in the 250SX Futures Class.
The AMA Arenacross National Championship Series formerly crowned the country's best Arenacross racers and prepared them for a professional career in AMA Supercross.
In addition, the AMA Arenacross National Amateur Championship is a singular event that recognizes the best Arenacross racers in a number of skill-, age- and displacement-based classes.

Feld manages the promotional aspects of the series, while the AMA develops the rules and recognizes class champions. Feld Motor Sports also is the AMA's partner in one of the world's most recognized motorsports: AMA Supercross.
